I'm curious to know if there are individuals or services available that literally walks a startup through raising funding, for example help them get an investor list, initiate investor contact and help founders with follow up and pitch decks. All this for a fee and perhaps some stock compensation... are there any similar services? Would you advise a startup to use such a service...
I personally recently raised $1.2M seed investment for my own startup after one year of networking events, startup competitions and pitch sessions.
Today I work for a network of 800 US Family Offices as external advisor. We are looking to invest in US based companies for series A,B,C rounds.
If you send me more information about your project/pitch with a PM I can evaluate if I can help.
